ReefBlitz 2018

 
 
ReefBlitz is an annual event that lets you contribute to a snapshot of catchment and reef health, and get involved in practical actions to help look after Queensland's reefs.
 
 
 
2018 is the International Year of the Reef and we're already plotting ReefBlitz 2018. 
 
We are seeking to deliver events in the following locations:
  • Cairns
  • Townsville
  • Mackay/Whitsundays
  • Gladstone
  • Brisbane/SE QLD region
We're seeking partners, supporters and ideas! Want to get involved? We'd love to have a chat! Email us!
 
 
Why ReefBlitz Matters! 
Hot of the press is the lastest research  (Dean et al 2018) showing why ReefBlitz & the citizen science programs it supports are so important!  A new study with Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions showed that not only can citizen science generate large amounts of data about our reefs, but citizen science programs can positively influence stewardship! ReefBlitz participants in 2016 reported a willingness to share reef conservation information (91%), increased support for marine science and conservation (87%), and intention to adopt a new conservation behaviour (51%).
